what makes a life that is worth living?

recently, i’ve been seeing a lot of bucket lists. spotted a few of these 40-before-40 style lists toonext year, a friend of mine is using a diary to prompt her actions in daily life. also, my fingers’ new found fame has led to a few conversations regarding personal ambition.

all these things have got me thinking more and more about the eventfulness of my own life..

possibly more than anything else, this amanda palmer song has put me in such a reflective mood.  to me the song is about how you see yourself at different times in your life.

these lyrics of the last verse resonated with me:

And it’s funny how I imagined
That I could win this win-less fight
Maybe it isn’t all that funny
That I’ve been fighting all my life
But maybe I have to think it’s funny
If I want to live before I die
And maybe it’s funniest of all
To think I’ll die before I actually see
That I am exactly the person that I want to be
Fuck yes.
